on -- there is a lot of unknowns. i still think it is a very tight race and it is competitive. >> erin, all morning, the obama campaign tried to portray the campaign as mixing falsehoods with narratives, can that in any way re-write the debate impressions? >> it can, we saw the president do this the morning just after the debate thursday. they were essentially calling mitt romney a liar. and david axelrod said not surprisingly, he will say anything on a conference call that they did with reporters. and the ads are doing this, as well. saying that mitt romney is a flip-flopper, saying anything to get elected. that could be very powerful for president obama. >> and if you haven't seen this cover, mitt romney there at the debate podium, next to an empty chair. that image not withstanding, do you get a sense that those in democratic circles may have negatively over-reacted to the president's performance? >> you know, i thought a lot about that. and i don't think they did in this regard. the debate was seen by nearly 70 million people. almost a record, at least over the past 20 years or so. and you know
